Halloween Graffiti Text Effect
Tutorials Text Effects 17849 Views June 20th, 2010

The Halloween is coming soon, so I was inspired to draw a Halloween text effect that looks like a graffiti on a brick wall texture. I will also show you how to draw a Halloween pumpkin shape using the Pen Tool. If you are interested in other articles with the same theme you can check out our other horror Halloween resources.

Step 7 - Add brick texture

Until we add a texture to the entire image lets add a stroke to the text layers; color #5a2810, size 2; the reason was to look more like a graffiti.

And for making the pumpkin more scary take the Burn Tool and darken the area around eyes, nose and mouth.

Now lets do the final retouch. Go to Layer - New - Layer. Than go to Image - Apply Image. The result is a new layer that contains an image with all the visible layers merged. Call this layer Final Image.

We will add now a brick texture. Go to Filter - Texture - Texturizer and choose brick texture.

It is a good result but the color is too flat so I will add an extra texture. Go to TextureKing and download this rust texture , copy it into a layer on top of Final Image layer; than scale it to 50%(edit-transform-scale) and change the blending mode of this layer to Soft Light 100%.

This is the final result!
